Spidey vs. the Punisher! 1975 Albert Bigley Original Art! Marvel Comics?!

Another big one (this measures over 11 by 17 inches!) from my graphite-smudged past! Dig this pencil cover recreation of the fabulous front of GIANT-SIZE SPIDER-MAN #4, from the sizzling spring of 1975! The actual cover art was created by the matchless Gil Kane, and that was all it took to inspire me to try to attain similar greatness! Notice I said "try?" Click below to enlarge, Marvel masochists!

Above, left: My (age nine) own pencilled artwork, where Spidey some-
how looks like a mannequin caught on some telephone wires, while a
less-than-menacing Punisher seems to be directing his movements!
